22 car tyres have been slashed in Ipswich


MORE than 20 cars were damaged by vandals in a matter of hours.


Police are asking for help in tracing the people responsible the offences which took place between 4pm on Sunday and 3pm on Monday.

22 cars were damaged to total and officers have said the offenders slashed or punctured tyres of vehicles in Milton Street, Colchester Road, Kirby Street, Norman Crescent, Dumbarton Road, Brunswick Road and Renfrew Road.

Police are linking all the incidents and are asking anyone with information to call Suffolk police on 101.



  • Well !, what can we expect ?, I'm fed up of reading in the EADT that another offender has been given a slap on the back of their hand and told to go away and don't do it again, you naughty boy !! MP's whom stand at the dispatch box spouting "Tough on crime and Tough on the causes of crime", should be charged with mis-leading the House of Commons !

  • I don't know why the police even bother looking for the culprits, they wouldn't do anything even if they catch them.
